Artist: Panty Raid Track: "Crunkalicious" Album: The Sauce Listen
The power of Panty Raid lies in its understated beauty -- the ability of two West Coast DJs to do a lot with a little. "Crunkalicious" combines the bass-heavy minimalism of dubstep with just enough go-crazy crunk to make something absolutely new and exciting. It's powerful yet restrained, simple on the surface but in reality supremely orchestrated.
Rarely do concept albums hit so hard in the rear. Look for this album on my year-end favorites list.
